Guests: Hanford Challenge's Tom Carpenter and Meredith Crafton
The San Francisco-based URS Corporation doesn't like whistleblowers. And the company knows how to make them suffer for their sins. URS recently fired yet another employee (Donna Busche, former Hanford Nuclear Reservation Environmental & Nuclear Safety Manager), when she went public with her doubts about Hanford's safety culture.
March 11 marks the third anniversary of the beginning of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. As the ecological problems caused by the triple melt down there continue to grow, people's awareness of the urgency for ending nuclear power is also growing. This year many groups and individuals around the world are remembering Fukushima through a host of different actions, from visiting Japanese embassies to blockading bridges, to simply turning off their lights. This special, guest hosted, episode of Political Analysis will try to give an overview of the many Actions taking place and try to capture the mounting excitement and determination of anti-nuclear activists as they push for an end to nuclear power.
